Platform support for nRF52840.

I understand that nRF52840 is still in the preview development kit stages as per Nordic. Is there a approximate timeline as to when nRF52840 would be added as a valid platform to the MBED online compiler and build applications against the preview nordic development kit?

Thanks, Ajay

Question relating to:

The nRF52 Development Kit is a single-board development kit for Bluetooth Smart, ANT and 2.4GHz proprietary applications using the nRF52 Series SoC. This kit supports both development for nRF52832 SoCs.

+1 :-)

Probably you noticed that it's already available for off-line mbed-cli tool. try:

 mbed compile -m NRF52840_DK...

Adding it to on-line compiler is expected soon (probably at the end of may or the beginning of June).

Accepted Answer

Thanks Andrzej, I will look forward to seeing the platform being available on the online compiler. Also thanks for letting me know regarding the offline option. Since we have been programming on the NRF52_DK board, I am assuming most of the code will work on the nrf52840 board as well? Also is the MBED BLE API going to support more of the new advanced features of the BLE 5 ?

Mbed-os code for nRF52_DK will be working on nRF52840_DK as well. About mbed-BLE APi - it is question to ARM when they plan to support a 5th feature in the commmon API. But it is always possible to make a support on your own - Nordic SoftDevice API is always available (only need to be carefully & look around when you using it).

Hi! I'm just starting down the mbed route and am looking closely at the nRF52840_DK; any update on when it will be available in the online compiler? Doesn't look like I can add it yet. Thanks!
